  1. ditched the deal/ new barn spinoff: tipping for certain services?

    My horse is doing very well in the new barn. Has settled in like he's lived there for ages.

    Turnout and blanketing changes are included in the monthly board, but putting boots on and off in...

    Yup, I shared the date with the trainer and the BO. Gave them a date range over a little over a month ago and told them it would be between X and Y day depending on when I could get a trailer in....

    I've saved all the correspondance, texts and emails, but what would I use it for?

    Ok, so I have specific plans to trailer out. I also have a clinic trip planned with a few people from the new barn. With the money ill be saving on commute costs, I can put that towards special...

    @js: problem is I'm out of town until the first of the year. If I communicated anything it would have to be in email at this point. And since I'm gone, there's no way I could check on anything.

    To the lady two folks who responded. No, I don't think what's going on is ok. That's why I'll be out of there shortly.

    I never really liked the BO 's "deal" since it was constantly changing and...

    Update: spoke with trainer regarding the tack issue.
    They said I had left my bridle out and so-and-so cleaned it and may have put it back in the wrong place. Continued by saying that please let...

    @2horseygirls: I didn't think your post was bitchy at all. It looks like you have pretty good insight into what I'm thinking.

    Putting in a 3-day notice and telling the trainer I would be leaving...

    I think someone is doing something. I'm shocked at how badly they've tried to hide it...which makes me wonder if I'm over reacting.

    Judging from the responses it seems like I wouldn't be...

    Do you think that some really did ride my horse without permission?

    I'm pretty sure that I didn't imagine the saddle thing. What I don't understand though is if someone did ride my horse, why be...

    I get my jump poles from Home Depot. These half-round thingies you can get in 8' or 10' lengths. While they aren't fancy, they are inexpensive, about $3.50 or so for the 8' ones last I check earlier...

    Update: am I losing it or is something weird going down?

    I walk into the barn one day this week and my horse's bridle is on the cleaning rack all polished and strapped together. I don't make...

    "This phenomena occurs because there are more electrons in the nucleus..."

    Said by a friend of mine at his PhD qualifying exam when he made up the answer to something he didn't know and...

    I agree. If I had bad eyesight, I'd be grumpy too.

    Also, since the Mare's sire passed away recently, another point for giving this a try if you can find a suitable TB stallion.

    @2horseygirls: I definitely see the benefit from being able to ride everyday by keeping my horse closer to home.

    The thing I'm struggling with is going from being in a "program" to being on my...

    @Kate: I would be interested what is making people think the BO has been on my horse? Not to argue at all, but I had never thought of that until people mentioned it in this thread.

    I had thought...

    @bluey: TheJenners is correct. The BO is the one who is a beginner rider and who manages the barn for the most part. There is a resident trainer who is excellent and really knows what they are doing.

    Update: I've dropped the subject and just have the usual friendly "chit-chat" with BO, but nothing beyond that. Then they make a point of telling me a few days latr that my horse is "rowdy", and that...

    Well trainer didn't like the idea of a 1/2 lease with anybody, only because trainer thought that with showing having gone well this year, why bring another rider on board and confuse the horse. BO...

    After reading this thread, I don't think I'll ever buy a truck and trailer :no:

    I talked to the trainer about a 1/2 lease in the beginning of the discussions (before BO's "offer"). Trainer was against the idea of a 1/2 lease even if horse stayed in full training. Said she...
